Chris' intuition was spot on!!! We had the ultrasound on Friday, and the baby was being so modest we couldn't tell for the first 20 minutes or so - they even made me go walk around to help her move a little. Second round was the winner - GIRL!
I'm not really feeling super pregnant... I'm still wearing most of my clothes and I'm not sick anymore (phew!) I have had a few friends tell me they are disappointed I'm not showing more... patience, I'm sure I'll get there! The belly has popped a little. I've been hitting the local spin class twice a week and it's helping me stay happy. These last few dreary weeks of winter are killin me! Bring on the SUNSHINE!!!

I don't feel like I have that much to show being almost half way there! Again, just a little chubby around the middle. I think this past week I felt it move! I've heard it described as a flutter, but I would describe it more like a faint involuntary muscle twitch deep in your lower stomach... it's not consistent and I've only noticed it a few times while driving home. It's pretty amazing to think about what you are feeling.
We will be 18 weeks along in a few days! I feel like my energy is finally back at a level that I can be semi functional when I get home from work. (ie doing the dishes, laundry and/or cooking) I've been back to the gym and my food habits have leveled off from strangeness. (Although my favorite dinner these days is asparagus and popcorn - call me crazy!)
Our gender revealing ultrasound is on the 20th - we will keep you posted on what we discover!!!
